Among those climbing in the Alps were Edward LaChapelle, George Senner and William Byrd. Reports from the Mt. Rainier Guide Service indicate a very successful summer, with over 300 climbers reaching the summit, 82 of them led by guides. Among the new ascents by members during 1951 was that of Mt. Saugstad, near Bella Coola, by Peter Schoening and his party.
